After a few coats of Rustoleum Barbie has gone over to the darkside.
Here is one before pic for those of you who have not seen her.

I think I'll upgrade to some marine plywood.:laugh:
 
The pink was cute and all, but the black looks much better not-tagged-smiley-10203.png

i guess so. :D
Next comes the bed liner in the interior.:chug:
Then seats.

from OSB to marine plywood would be like Rusty sheet steel to stainless steel.:D
A fashion statement, to be sure.

You guys laugh about the wood, but there used to be a Jeep around here that had 2x6 lumber bumpers. It actually looked kinda good (I am ashamed to say). Nice job on the paint, though... The matte finish looks great. Daisy Duke to Cooter in one day!
 
Thorwon how much paint did you have to use to cover up the jeep. i just found out the color that i want for my jeep is 175 a quart! fml
 
Oh My! And you admit to driving it before? Much better now. I bet the cops sure knew who owned before to new paint. They probably choked on their donut. Did you ever sell makeup?

Sorry, I couldn't help it.

the cops probably followed it around thinking it was a donut. All it needed was giant jimmies. It does look much better now. I'd like to know, too, how many cans of paint it took. My CJ needs paint desperately, and a black or blue satin is looking pretty tempting right about now... I'm actually tempted to do that $98 boat paint roll-on, but you never know...

I used 1 QT of Rustoleum semigloss paint thinned it about 1/4 thinner to 3/4 paint. I sprayed 4 very light coats so it would dry quickly. I was surprised at the results. It's not a pro job but it looks great for a back yard paint job.:D

NO I did NOT drive it like it was.:eek: The guy that traided it to me drove it about 60 miles to get it to my house.

Looks heaps better ... but I was a little disappointed to hear you used a proper spray gun on it ... I was thinking nothing beats a "Rattle Can Special" :D Very easy to touch up on the trail !! :D
